    Hi all. Yes I’m sorry, this is yet another of those annoying appeals for help.

    This appeal is for volunteers to help in the build up to our F.A Cup game against Manchester United on 16th March at Molineux.
    As a lot of you know, we have done a number of these projects before and quite a number of you have been incredible with your previous offers of help.

    For this particular very important game, I’ve been asked to organise something very, very special, and to make this an occasion that will hopefully live long in all of our memories. Given the resources that have been made available, I have no doubt at all that we will have not seen anything like this before in our long history. I think it will be an experience that none of us will forget in a hurry.

    Obviously, with this being a very ambitious project that will take a few weeks of designing and organising, which will also include our amazing new lighting facilities, to make it come to fruition I do need your assistance. I can promise you that after seeing this, and by being an important part of it, you will feel extremely proud to be a Wolves fan.

    This help will be needed during the week before the 16th March and can be with whatever time you can put in, from just an hour or two, to longer if you can. The work is easy and very rewarding, as the plan will already have been laid out. You just have to follow very simple design plan instructions.

    I can honestly say that so far, everyone who has done this before, has said what a thoroughly enjoyable experience they have had doing it, they have met some fantastic, like minded folk and afterwards they have all asked when can they help with another one. It is also a great opportunity to see the other stands in the stadium that you would not otherwise see, and to experience the quite eerie atmosphere of an empty Molineux.

    Wolves always provide an excellent lunch and all day long refreshments, and they are of course extremely grateful. They are also very much aware that these special times and occasions cannot be created at all without the help of the fans, and they value and appreciate these fans immensely.

    If you can help even for just an hour, please PM me with your details and a phone number and I will then contact you.

    Many, many thanks,
    Paul.

    Sounds great...it really does. It'll help us to start with a bang and to help us continue that way without fizzling out into a whimper.

    It's a fixture which we'll need to fight tooth and nail for possibly 120 minutes and to end with a well-focused shoot-out. I disagree with the view that players can't practice penalties, the keeper needs to as well so give him the practice.

    I don't think that it has yet, but the preparations can take place throughout the week beforehand.

    All down to the council. They're still looking into the malfunction against West Ham as far as I'm aware.

    I got very excited. I checked the BBC website and it said Saturday 3pm. Checked the other QF's they say the same. Sad face.

    Fingers crossed, fireworks and lighting are part of all this, so no one hopes they are back more than me.

    The volunteer team that remove the equipment when the displays are over were very close to the tray that had the problem. These guys clearly saw exactly what happened and it was not due to any faulty equipment. Simply was a case of mis-timings, that will never ever be allowed to happen again.

    Surely it hasn't been decided yet and surely it'll be on TV? Matches with a Saturday 3:00 pm KO aren't generally broadcast, are they?

    I won't have recovered from my op on the previous Wednesday so I really need it to be on TV.:(

    Yep, @StefanWolves , it hasn't been confirmed. I very much doubt that any of them will be on Saturday at 3:00 pm - nay, I'm positive.
    Early and late Saturday, Sunday and Monday is my guess. It's possible that there could be two on the Sunday and only one (early or late) on the Saturday.

    This is probably the biggest game at the Molineux in 40 years. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you have planned @PumpKing.

    Thanks for your very kind offer “iantendo, very much appreciated. Unfortunately if I’ve not got this all done and dusted by 5pm Friday 15th, I am in big, big trouble.

    Any earlier times in that week would be fantastic if you can though.

    Hoping it will match the occasion Andy. I just love Fosun and the guys at Wolves for trusting us to do this and for providing the incredible resources to enable us to make it as special as I’m sure it will be.

    It certainly won’t have been without effort. I may as well close the factory for a fortnight for all the work I’ll get done there. So looking forward to making it happen, so any more volunteers will be welcomed with open arms.

    The eyes of the world will be on us in a way they haven't been for a long time. I'm sure you and the volunteers will help us to give everyone a great show.

    Here’s a thought you might like for some future event...

    For a night game you rent 4 large spotlights, and have the beams cross to form a big W in the sky over Wolverhampton.
    Bonus if they look golden.
    It’s 1.30 pm here....I’m not drinking...lol

    PumpKing, please can you ensure Laurie bans any half and half scarf sellers! This is an opportunity for all those Manc plastics and their plastic kids to turn this really important game into a luvvy- duvvy occasion. We want to smash this lot.

    There certainly won’t be anything officially approved on sale, and it’s obviously the unofficial sellers that are a scourge.
    I’m sure none even have licences as street traders anyway so it should be possible to stop them, but they just move on around the next corner.

    I think it’s a Police matter though rather than anything the club can do. I’m sure Laurie detests them as much as anyone else does, after all they are taking revenue from the clubs coffers. If folk didn’t buy the awful things they wouldn’t be around selling them.

    I'm only sorry I live in Oz and therefore can't help, otherwise I would love to as a thankyou to Fosun for what they have done for our club.
    I hope you get all the help you need, and I look forward to seeing the results of all your hard work.
    Thankyou for all your efforts.
